The release notes for this version contain the following sections:

Client-Side Logging

  • Added support for client performance logging and request/response xml logging at startup. These capabilities can be enabled by modifying the AppliedOLAP.Dodeca.SmartClient.exe.config file as in the following example. #3207

    <appSettings>
      <!-- ... -->
      <!-- Indicates whether to write performance log at startup. -->
      <add key="LogPerformanceAtStartup" value="true"/>
      <!-- Indicates whether to log request response xml at startup. -->
      <add key="LogRequestResponseXmlAtStartup" value="true"/>
      <!-- Indicates an optional path for logging request response xml at startup. -->
      <add key="LogRequestResponseXmlAtStartupPath" value="C:\temp\dodeca\logs"/>
    </appSettings>

Commentary

  • Fixed Issue: Certain Unicode characters, such as the Euro symbol "€", are not retained correctly in comments. For example, the Euro symbol renders as "€" when the saved comment is displayed in the client. This issue was introduced in 8.0.0.569 and only affects Windows servers. #3142

Import Connections

  • Fixed Issue: The Import Connections utility, which is accessed from the Essbase Connection Editor, does not assign the specified APS URL to the Essbase connections created by the import. #3202

Modules Metadata Editor

  • Fixed Issue: When none of the modules loaded into a running application include a .NET assembly (.dll) file, the Modules Metadata Editor's Module Files editor fails to validate any module and presents a path not found error message when the Validate button is pressed. This issue was introduced in version 8.0.0.569. #3184

SQLPassthroughDataSets

  • Fixed Issue: When a TIMESTAMP type column is inserted or updated, the value written into the table is shifted by the Dodeca client and server’s local time zone offsets. When a TIMESTAMP type column is subsequently selected, the value is shifted by the Dodeca server’s local time zone offset. #3208

Zoom Factor Tool

  • Fixed Issue: When the Ctrl key and mouse wheel are used to change the zoom magnification, the update of the percentage is not synchronized correctly with the magnification percentage of the sheet. #3200
